Agonita picea Gressitt, 1953 

( Fig. 14View FIGURES 12 – 19. 12)

Agonita picea Gressitt, 1953a: 124  .

Type locality. China, Fujian prov., Shaowu Co., Dazhulan, approx. 27°41.7′N, 117°39.0′E, 1000 m a.s.l.

Original type series. Holotype ( LMNH) and one paratype ( CAS) with the same data.

Type material examined. Holotype, glued: ‘Fukien, S. China | Shaowu TaChuFung [hw] | T.C.Maa [p] V-21- 1942 [hw] [w, p, cb] || HOLOTYPE | AGONITA  [hw] | SCULPTURATA [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || AGONITA  | SCULPTURATA | GRESS. | J.L.G. Det 1950 [w, hw by Gressitt, cb] || En-289752 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w, p, cb]’; paratype, glued: ‘Fukien, S. China | Shaowu TaChuFung | Jun. 6-9 [hw] 1943 | T. C. MAA || PARATYPE || AGONITA  [hw] | PICEA [hw] | J. L. Gressitt [y, p, cb]’.

Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. Gressitt (1953a) mentioned in the original description ‘Ta-Chu-Lan’ as the type locality while on the label is ‘Ta-Chu-Fung’ but both actually refer to the same place, known as Dazhulan. He also stated that the paratype is deposited in CAS, however, the specimen is actually housed in LMNH.

Agonita picea  is very distinct as it is the only Chinese species with three regular rows of punctures between 1 st and  2nd elytral costa.
